You never want to get stranded by your gear, especially on your adventure ride. At e*thirteen, we know how to create the optimal blend of performance and reliability from our mountain bike racing heritage.
Carbon rims carry a lifetime, no questions asked, free warranty replacement. Things sometimes break, especially when riders push the limits. Mistakes happen when those limits are pushed, so we’ve engineered the carbon rims to maintain a tubeless seal if you do manage to crack one.
Adventure rides can have heavy consequences on equipment. Unexpected gifts like sticks in the spokes or a bent derailleur hanger sending your chain into your spokes, our aluminum hub axle allows for simple, tool-free on-the-trail maintenance. A unique, captive endcap thread ensures the cassette and freehub body won’t fall into the dirt when the rear wheel is removed.
For optimal reliability, redundancy is critical. 6 bolt brake rotor interfaces of superior reliability can be easily maintained with a multi-tool.
